Culture of Inclusion
We believe diversity is a cornerstone of success (and research bears this out!). At Boingo, everyone is welcome. No matter race, gender, age, religion, or identity – we strive to be a place where all can bring their whole, authentic self to work.
Boingo Unity is an employee resource group where our BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and Boingoites with disabilities can bring their whole selves to the table for personal and professional development. For allies, it’s a place to learn – and unlearn – in the spirit of a racial and social justice.
Some of our most talented Boingoites are veterans. We’re grateful for their service and proud to be part of their civilian career path. The Boingo Veterans employee resource group was started by our veterans to mentor and support each other as well as servicemembers and veterans in the communities where we live and work.
Boingo is a proud recipient of the HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award for our commitment to recruiting, employing, and retaining veterans.
Boingo Women is an employee resource group that celebrates diverse talents and is dedicated to empowering women to follow a fulfilling career through education, networking and mentoring opportunities.

Best Places to Work
There’s many reasons Boingo is one of the Best Places to Work in LA. One of them is our competitive pay and bonus package.
Working at Boingo comes with more perks than a paycheck. We offer an incredible benefits package that includes equity for everyone, competitive pay, Quarterly Incentive Plan (bonus), flexible spending accounts (healthcare and dependent care), and a 401(k) Savings Plan with an employer match.
To help prepare employees for retirement, our 401(k) Savings plan is opt out, meaning employees are automatically enrolled. This “behavioral” finance approach means 74% of all Boingo employees are actively saving for retirement, while enjoying a company match.
We conduct financial literacy training throughout the year. Seminars have included retirement planning, managing student loan debt, and first-time homebuyer education.
